What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, also known as dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates), are made to cover up the front surface of your teeth to improve your smile. They are wafer-thin and custom-made for every mouth. They are tooth-colored so nobody will ever know that you have them on your teeth!
Once your veneers are made, they will be bonded to your teeth. This means that they will be permanently cemented to your teeth, so you don’t have to worry about them falling off.
Before we bond your veneers to your teeth, we need to make sure that your teeth are ready. We clean, polish, and etch your teeth. The etching process helps with the bonding process. The veneer will stick to your tooth better because it is roughened during this process.
Once your tooth is ready, we use a special cement on the veneer and place it right on your tooth. We then use a special light to activate the chemicals in the cement, so it fixes quickly. After that, we remove any excess cement and evaluate your mouth to make sure that we don’t have to make any other changes.
